Six months into the Trump administration, and the Spanish-language version of the White House website still isn't here, but it may be coming soon.
According to White House director of media affairs Helen Aguirre Ferré, “the priority remains to improve the English language website.” However, she told the Associated Press that the Spanish version of the site will come later this year.
In January, the Trump administration removed all Spanish-language content from the site, causing significant backlash.
“The removal of Spanish says something about English monolingualism, but it also says something about the speakers of Spanish,” a Florida International University linguistics professor told McClatchy during the time it was removed. “Are you in or are you out? Suddenly they’re out.”
Some governmental agencies, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), have created Spanish components for their sites and also established Spanish Twitter handles. As for the Trump administration's Spanish-language Twitter account, @LaCasaBlanca, it's filled with incorrect translations and typos.
